PARLIPHONE OR PARLOPHONE
Posted by STEVE M on
Don't you just love this 1922 advert for a Parliphone loudspeaker made entirely from Ebonite to encapsulate an SG Brown drive unit. It was unusual as it was a vertical radiator and one wonders whether or not it was tuned to give a sonic stage ala Amar Bose or even OP Lowther? Some of you may wonder if Parliphone is around today or was it just a "flash in the pan" but no, 95 years later we have Parl - iPhone - a name for a range of Apple iPhone cases to fit all the way from iPhone4 to iPhone X...
